I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and must be out of my let out apartment in Herne Hill by 29/5/2020. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. Is it possible to complete in 4 weeks as don't want to have to move into temporary accommodation?
It is unwise to serve notice on a rental until exchange of contracts has taken place. Assuming that you have not previously done so, speak to your lawyer and request that they seek the assistance the other lawyers, try to get a realistic time scale from them that all parties will work to achieve
Should my lawyer be raising questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Herne Hill.
Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Herne Hill. Some people will purchase a house in Herne Hill, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Conveyancers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous searches that may be carried out by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Herne Hill. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard inquiry of the seller to find out whether the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the owner, then a purchaser may issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an inaccurate answer. A buyer’s solicitors should also commission an enviro search. This will reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations should be carried out.
